Honda CBR1000 engine and turbocharged, as well, on a go-kart. Does this count?

I know that this thread is titled lunacy, but I thought that I would add a couple of things that are just awesome wink

1955 Porsche 356 A `Silver Bullet` Custom Hot Rod
Wildly Modified 356A with Hot Rod 3.0L 6-Cyliner







LS1 in the rear of 1966 Corvair Corsa coupe






And considering the forum that we are on, might aswell post this smile

Why would you mount the engine around that way?

The Dahlback Polo, gone is the humdrum four cylinder engine and in its place an Audi Rs4 sourced 2.7 litre V6 with a single (BIG) turbocharger which boosts to 2.4bar. The result? 990BHP and 1220Nm (circa 900ft/lbs)
It is also a full carbon bodied car and weighs in at 913KGs
I've been to Borlange ... had I known they had a decent engine tuner there, I'd have had a nosey... Also, notice the MILF HUNTER sticker on the engine. hehe

I hate these threads. Every post makes me feel that slotting an LS3 V8 into my MX5 is perfectly sensible.
Rubbish pics but one I've been working on recently (it's only an LS1 so not as sensible as an LS3 wink )

I hardly dare ask, but what's your budget? I'm telling myself it would be £10k plus and therefore I should just buy a Z4M instead...

All the parts to do the conversion can be bought from a couple of specialists in the USA

Check out the Flyin Miata site.

Oh why did I have to read this thread, I bought an old Merc 230e the other week and I'm getting Ideas. Anyone got any ideas what to put in it, I was looking at a CLK 5.5 AMG engine on ebay last night.
Atleast do it properly with the ev12 brabus one wink



Or surely a 5.4 supercharged version would be even more fun! (the 55 AMG's are all 5.4).
